Twitter has become a great venue for people to get important events into the public light. It is also a great way to get good consumer dialogue directly between customers and brands.
But now it is becoming a massive monster.
I try to post pretty regularly on my Twitter, but by the time I post anything there are already 7 immediately after mine. That means my average follower has to read through 7 tweets just to see mine.
That is insane. I posted my tweet 20 seconds ago and 10 other people have jumped on top of mine.
In just 20 seconds.
And that’s on a good day.
To get your tweet read anymore you have to tag 6 people and have it retweeted 12 times to get any visualization on it.
It only gets worse every day with more and more people joining the site.
Twitter is simple, user friendly, and fun. But now with the virtual overcrowding it is starting to become a victim of its own success.
Eventually there will just be TOO much information being thrown out, and people are going to start getting overloaded.
I know I am.
